ELIMINATING WEAPONS OF INDIVIDUAL DESTRUCTION: LANDMINES, CLUSTER BOMBS, DEPLETED URANIUM
As veterans who know the consequences of war, we abhor all weapons.
Weapons like landmines and cluster bombs which continue to kill and maim long after a war has ended.
Weapons like depleted uranium munitions whose radioactivity causes cancers long after combat has ended.
The use of landmines, cluster bombs, and depleted uranium munitions has tragic consequences civilians and our own troops at great risk.
The Landmine Ban Treaty and Cluster Munitions Convention will end the production, use, stockpiling and trade of land mines and cluster bombs.
The International Coalition to Ban Uranium Weapons (ICBUW) is a global coalition working to ban the use, transport, manufacture, sale and export of all depleted uranium munitions.
It is the mission of the VFP landmine, cluster bomb, depleted uranium munitions working group to:
- make the American public aware of the consequences of the use of these heinous weapons.
- demand that our government join the Landmine Ban Treaty, the Cluster Munitions Convention, and the International Coalition to Ban Uranium Weapons.
- do all we can to eliminate these horrific weapons of individual destruction.
When we use our resources to remove land mines, cluster bombs, and depleted uranium munitions, we are working to remove suffering, fear and impoverishment.
We are working to build a safer, more secure world for all citizens. We are working for peace.
